4 bedroom detached house
4 bedroom detached house
This unique 4 bedroom detached family home combines stylish living with characteristic charm from the past. The history of the lodge has been sympathetically maintained whilst transforming this lovely property into a chic and stylish modern country home. Vaulted ceilings in many of the rooms, wooden-style flooring, latch doors and sash-style windows easily blend with the open plan kitchen/diner, on-trend en-suites and bi-fold doors to the garden. The very best of both worlds!
Tofts Lodge is in Tofts Chase, Little Baddow. On approaching the lodge along a private turning, you will see that the house is surrounded by farmland, greenery and views! The 3 acres of land opposite the lodge is also included in the sale! The five bar gate and ranch style fencing with enclosed shrubs, lawned area and mature trees add to the country feel here and the gravel drive has ample parking for several cars.
Once inside the lodge, the large hallway with tiled flooring leads you off to discover the delights that this home has to offer. To your right you will find one of the two reception areas. Could this be your snug, music room or playroom? The double doors in this room lead you into the second reception area with its roof lights, bi-fold doors and incredible views over the rear garden and fields beyond. You could be forgiven for wanting to sit awhile to enjoy the spaciousness, natural light and neutral decor and to take in the fantastic garden and uninterrupted views! But, there is more to see! A door from this reception room takes you into the study.
Back into the hall and you will find the kitchen ahead of you. The moment you walk into this open plan space, you can see yourself preparing and cooking meals in the stylish kitchen. The integrated appliances, gloss wall and base units, granite style worktops and breakfast bar will definitely enhance your cooking experience whilst you are able to chat to friends and family who may be sitting at the dining table or relaxing in the sofa space. The roof lantern above the dining area allows light to flood into this space and with the farmland and garden views through the bi-fold doors, you could be forgiven for thinking that you were in paradise! More of the great outdoors later!
From the hallway, doors take you through into the 2 ground floor bedrooms which both have en-suites of their own. The size of these rooms have to be seen to be appreciated. Features of these rooms include the roof lights and plentiful windows which allow natural light to bathe the rooms, space for dressing areas, window seats and those views! The tiles, vanity units with integral storage and fixtures in the en-suites all add to the luxurious feel.
Upstairs reveals 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Vaulted ceilings, roof lights and natural light give this space a modern, stylish feel.
OUTSIDE: The rear garden is enclosed and has stunning views over the farmland and fields beyond. Watch the horses and sheep graze from your lounge, patio or bench at the end of the garden! In fact, there are many places where you can stop and sit a while to enjoy the views from this amazing home! There is a garden pond, flowerbed planting and an outbuilding complete with power and a water (from a natural well system). Could this be your home office, teenage living space, gym or workshop? To the side of the house, you will find the huge patio area where you could entertain friends and family into the night or just pick up your favourite book, relax in a lounger and nod off taking in the country air! The 3 acres of green land opposite the lodge is also yours to enjoy. Can you see yourself here walking the dogs, taking a stroll along the river or keeping those chickens for your breakfast eggs? This is a unique home waiting to write its next chapter with a new owner. Will you be the lucky one?
